Liam Payne’s engagement news to girlfriend Maya Henry has sparked some hilarious reactions from One Direction fans.
Directioners remain die hard fans of Liam Payne and his bandmates despite the fact the boys went on hiatus in 2015, meaning there have been some mixed reactions amongst the fandom.
“I’m just gonna sit here and cry. If this is true I’m so happy for him omg. But I won’t believe it until Liam confirms it,” tweeted one insistent fan.
“Congratulations but I’m sad and crying stop growing up Liam you’ll always be 16,” read one relatable tweet.
Immediately jumping to hopes of a One Direction reunion, a third wrote: “I wonder who will be Liam’s best mans* … Hint hint… 1D boys please [sic].”
“Happy but heartbroken,” added another.

“I JUST WOKE UP SHUT THE FRICK UP I AM NOT OKAY IM CRYING AND SCREAMING STOP STOP STOP,” screamed one Directioner.
Liam and Maya are yet to publicly confirm their engagement news.
The couple apparently got engaged during lockdown, but kept the news out of the spotlight.
Liam and Maya dated for around a year before going public with their relationship in August 2019.
And one month later, the 1D singer stopped by Capital Breakfast and spoke to Roman Kemp about his relationship, saying “we’re fairly happy at the moment.”
